If you've not done so already, add these dates to your diary; the 2017 Wigan International Jazz Festival will run from 6th July til 9th July. This will be the 32nd WIJF and with a hugely successful 2016 festival under his belt, director Ian Darrington had announced another impressive line-up.
Currently, rover tickets are not on sale but they'll be available soon and you should act fast because they'll be sold out for sure.
